RNZ Content Partnership with Pacific Media Centre

RNZ has announced a formal content sharing partnership with the Auckland based Pacific Media Centre - Te Amokura. The arrangement will allow content from rnz.co.nz, The Wireless, and respective RNZ YouTube channels to be published by the Pacific Media Centre.

The Pacific Media Centre, founded in 2007, is part of the AUT School of Communication Studies and collaborates with other Asia-Pacific media centres to research and promote informed journalism and media in the Pacific region. The centre publishes Pacific Journalism Review, and current affairs websites, PMC Online, Pacific Media Watch and Asia Pacific Report.

RNZ head of news and digital Glen Scanlon said the Pacific Media Centre was a natural partner. “Our Pacific journalism has long been recognised for its quality and we want this to be seen and shared as much as possible.

“In addition, the centre also helps nurture new talent and delivers unique story-telling. To also be able to share some of this is exciting.”

Director of the Pacific Media Centre, Professor David Robie, said: “We are delighted to enter this partnership with RNZ and formalise a long-standing cooperation. It is also a golden opportunity for some of our Asia-Pacific students to have greater profile for their work.”

RNZ Pacific team leader, Moera Tuilaepa-Taylor welcomed the content sharing arrangement noting that RNZ had been broadcasting to Pacific audiences since 1990 and is regarded as a strong independent voice with trusted relationships among Pacific neighbours.

“RNZ continues to serve people across the Pacific region, delivering essential day to day news and information and we are delighted to share this content with our colleagues at the Pacific Media Centre allowing each of us to reach new audiences.”
